Pray it Forward

Have you ever heard someone say, "I felt the prayer?" In Joshua 10, we see a looming battle and as the Israelites gain the upper hand and we see an amazing prayer. Joshua 10:14 says, “There has been no day like it before or since when the Lord heeded the voice of the man.” Joshua prayed an audacious prayer, Sun stand still and God did it.


The lie of self sufficiency

“I should’ve seen that coming.” Everyone hates that feeling. No one likes to be deceived. Join us this Sunday as we continue through our Joshua series with the message titled “the lie of self-sufficiency.” Joshua and the Israelites have experienced a lot of victories provided from the Lord's hand, but in Joshua chapter 9 we see what happens when they take decision making into their own hands when deception enters the camp.



Have you ever heard the statement right after a big victory is a dangerous time? Last week we saw the Israelites making a major breakthrough, marching as God commanded, and the walls of Jericho came crashing down. This week we see in Joshua 7 Israel suffer an immediate defeat at the hands of one man’s greed and covetousness.



Breakthrough: a sudden, dramatic, and important development. What does it take to break through ancient walls and obtain God's promise? We can feel that Israel is right on the brink, the precipice - an over 700 year old promise dating all the way back to Abraham is brimming and about to bring a revolution! There's just one thing left: complete submission to the supremacy of God and His circling plan, and the walls (of Jericho) and (of your) will come crashing down.


The Pleasance of Presence

God has been mighty at work in our services and outreach. What a great time it has been to see God at work! Have you ever had a person in your life who made everything better when they showed up? In our sermon series, FORWARD, there are just a few things left to complete for Israel to cross over into the Promised Land. As they are preparing in Joshua 5:13 "a man stood with his sword drawn" and Joshua said,"Are you for us or against us?" We are going to be looking at the impact of that man's...


The Power of a Testimony

This Sunday is going to be unforgettable. We are honored to have the Landreth family share a special testimony of how God has miraculously worked in Eli's story. It is God's sovereign timing because in our FORWARD study this week, God tells Joshua to have the Israelites build a memorial of stones to celebrate the crossing of the Jordan River. Why? In cases like these we can forget to ascribe glory where it belongs - to God. In the moment, we are aware that it’s of God but as minutes flit...


Bridge over troubled waters

For 40 long years Israel had been wandering in the wilderness. Finally, we get to the point where Joshua is going to lead the Israelites into Canaan and it’s easy street, right? Wrong. Immediately, they are met with an insurmountable obstacle: it’s fall and the Jordan River's banks have swelled. When you Burn the Boats and begin to move FORWARD, expect adversity. Satan doesn't want the child of God moving forward 1 inch. Satan would prefer we take up residence in the wilderness, living...


From Shame to Fame

This week we are peering into Joshua 2. Often while working on the needs of many, God will divert His attention to one. Luke 15:4 says, "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?" Rahab was one of the ones. We are introduced to Rahab the harlot in Joshua 2, and her story tells me that sometimes God chooses people with rough resumes, gritty pasts, and audacity to...


The Recipe for Success

Do you have a unique recipe maybe one that shows up at holiday's or very special events? There are 1,189 chapters with over 783,000 words in the Bible and God shares for the one and only time the word success and the recipe for obtaining it. In Joshua 1:8- "This Book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein. For then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good...


The Courage of Conviction

Joshua is one of the greatest characters in all of the BIble. He was Moses' protege and chosen to lead God's people courageously into the promised land. There is a great hymn with these lines "Onward Christian Soldiers Marching as to war with the cross of Jesus going on before" and the theme running through the pages of Joshua is moving Forward. Forty years the children of Israel had to wander in the wilderness and wonder what could have been, what should have been, but Joshua because of...


Burn the Boats

Proverbs 29:18 says, "Where there is no vision the people perish." This Sunday, Pastor Rick will be bringing a vision message that is a 2023 rally cry entitled, "Burn The Boats." In Numbers 13 and 14, we study the story of Israel on the brink of going into the Promised Land with only one thing that could hold them back, and that one thing was Israel. In 2023, we want to challenge the whole church to be ALL IN with the vision: BURN THE BOATS. This Sunday will be an amazing time of worship...


Becoming more like Christ

It's 2023 and it's time to step "Forward" into Uncharted territory. To Paraphrase Joshua 3:3-4-God told the Israelites when they see the ark of the covenant (which represents the presence of God) you should follow after it, that you may know which way to go for it is a new way that you have not gone before. God wants to take us to deeper places with more of Him. Join us in prayer, that in 2023 we walk with the Lord finding His presence and being wholeheartedly committed to HIs ways seeking...


2022 Online Christmas Special



Protect your peace

“Peace be still, YOU are here so “it is well”, lyrics from a song performed by Lauren Daigle. Do these lyrics mean something to you? This week as we look at “Peace” and my prayer is that these lyrics would capture your heart and that no matter what comes, you will be able to hold onto the peace that Jesus offers you and I. It's a peace that surpasses all understanding, and keeps us in times of trouble, trials, and the kind of peace that will help you get through the hardest seasons of life...


The Gift of Hope

Christmas season is all consuming as we are just over 2 weeks away from the celebration of Jesus's birth. Last week, many in our church served through the fantastic performance of "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" and through that outreach there were 10 people who gave their lives to King Jesus! We are studying a new sermon series: The Gifts of Christmas. Paul said, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of...


Deliverance from the Den

This Sunday we hope and pray you find encouragement as we look at Daniel 6 and the message, "Deliverance from the Den". Certainly we all have experiences of which there was no escape outside of the embracement of God. There are so many applications so we hope you will join us that the application will not be just looked at but lived out.


Running into a relentless God

We have made it to the final week of the great story of Jonah, which is actually a story about the great Relentless God, whose mercy has no geographical, cultural, political, and economic affiliation. The dialogue between God and Jonah (Jonah 4:1-11), which is considered the climax of the Book of Jonah, is an invitation to cultivate love. Do we agree with God that in our great cities there is so much sin, and so little witness, Do we pray that the gospel will go into every place, are we...


Running to Revival

Jonah gets a second chance… straight outta the belly of the fish. How will he respond? What about the Ninevites? What will they do? What about God? Will He relent?


Running out of a storm

We left Jonah running into a storm, being thrown overboard into the sea and into the mouth of a great fish! We are going to look at what happens after 3 days and 3 nights in that storm! When you feel trapped in a storm, how do you get out? This week Pastor Rick's sermon is entitled "Running Out of the Storm."


Running to your neighbor

This Sunday is Friend Day and we will be looking back at Jonah 1, where we see a huge storm strike almost causing the boat that Jonah and the mariners are in to break. What is Jonah doing during the storm? He is sleeping!!!! The mariners are frantic in the biggest storm of their lives and Jonah is unmoved. Our Friend Day message is entitled "Running to our Neighbor." When people all around us are hurting, are we helping?
